The formal structure of information models and the controlled manner of accessing and changing such models brings both flexibility and control when managing network elements. However, keeping information models synchronized and consistent across network elements and management systems is a challenging task. Today this problem is exasperated with the advent of ephemeral network functions and elements and also by the need for distributed scalable cooperating management functions running in containerized cloud deployments.
